How the Pooh visits Christopher Robin

c.a.. ,,e rt ites pn7 1
(Ouch, my left ear sounds like
it hurts!" Eeyore had insisted).
"Well, by now, I assume you
have discovered that it is snow-
ing and Christmasing," said Owl,
still slowly dragging Eeyore in-
to the house.
"Actually. we hadn't discussed
that point yet," replied Rabbit,
"However, I was just about to
bring it up with Robin here. Af-
ter all, there are more important
things to do than look for hay-
corns for one small pig. So Ro-

bin, now that we are all here, I
gather that all this stuff on the
ground has something to do with
snowing, but Piglet here seems
to be a little mixed up about
Christnasing. We, meaning Owl
and I, were going to tell him
earlier all about it, but ke know
you could tell him so much bet-
"I'd rather have haycorns re-
ally," said Piglet, "But yes, tell
us Robin, what is Christnasing

graciously rebuilt by you fellows,
and dragged on a forced march
to this dwelling? May I ask,
humbly, before you interrupt
me, what I have done to de-
serve this deed you have perpe-
trated upon me? Why have you
done this thing to me?"
"Eeyore, we've really done it
for ourselves, not for you." Ro-
bin said, "because, we need your
help. We have a problem of
great magnitude to solve. And
we need your help in thinking
how to solve it."

for help
"My, my touching. Your gra-
ciousness overwhelms me. I am
at your service, of course. Would
you like me to sign an inden-
ture? What will be my duties?
Would you like me to be your
door stop? Or perhaps a door
mat, to keep the fluff (piglet,
etcetera, pooh, oddments) out of
